Tispol, the European police network responsible for road safety, is organizing a large-scale speed check operation for Wednesday.
The point was indicated on Monday by the organization on its website. Those drivers in Belgium with a tendency to be heavy on the accelerator are therefore now being warned as Belgium will take part in the operation.

The checks will begin on Wednesday at 6 a.m. in the morning and will draw to a close at the same time on Thursday morning. The operation is part of a week specifically to fight against speeding at the wheel.

Paolo Cestra, the President of Tispol, explains, “People who still think that speeding is a minor offence are mistaken. Driving too fast has a devastating impact on the safety of other road users, which only serves to increase the risk of accidents and the seriousness of these.”

The federal police are yet to communicate about the planned operation.
